    That'd be neat, though kinda small isn't it? maybe if you could network a bunch so you can interact on the map so you don't got like 5 dudes looking at one screen.

    Then it would be like playing DnD in star trek.

    Well unless you're fighting on a huge bit of terrain it you could always zoom in/out & pan around the battlemap.

    While we're dreaming, they could create a character sheet client for the iPod Touch and iPhone that holds each individual character's info & powers that they could select and use, like how Scrabble for the iPad can use 'em to hold your letter tiles.

    I'm curious

    maybe I'm opening old wounds here
    but whatever happened to Unified?

    like last I heard pony had a crapload of real issues pop up that kept him from throwing a lot of time away on some forum thing and that's okay but I'd have figured that some enterprising fellow or coalition of fellows would have picked up the torch

    I just keep seeing the link still in DarkPrimus' sig and thinking "Dang, that'd be cool"

    i could never get the mechanics to work right, and that was sort of critical. Additionally, putting together a collection of all the lore and shit proved to be too large a project for me.

    thematically, Unified was a giant mess. i pulled inspiration and reference material from all over the place and sorta shotgunned them together and it was a giant incoherent mess

    i've put Unified behind me, i consider it a mistake that i learned a bit from, but still ultimately a mistake

    ok how do you like this

    Jenny Roakes was a second year grad student at MIT. Not really the brightest girl on campus, but apparently it isn't rocket science to get into MIT's department of animal science, especially when your focus is applied swine nutrition. Ever since starting college, she felt a little uneasy about how poor and unhip she was in comparison to her peers, and she tried to make up for it by being willing to do all the bitch work nobody else wanted to do.

    That's probably why she agreed to work an unpaid internship at Prairie State Semen Inc. After all, pig semen was basically where the money was anyway, and maybe she could get some networking connections for after college.

    Unfortunately, her compensating behavior could lead her into some less than safe situations. That's how she became a minor martyr in the animal rights movement. She was the only member of the staff short enough, flat chested enough, and possibly stupid enough to crawl into the pen of the heaviest pig ever produced by the farm when it managed to get one of its feet caught (more like forced) through a poop slat. When the pig panicked, it's hypermuscular body managed to break all four of it's legs, coming down on Jenny and suffocating her to death in a matter of minutes.

    "Suffocating her to death" is redundant, like "killing her to death" or "drowning her to death."

    basically, your backstory doesn't need to define your character, nor does it need to be something that unique and bizarre

    nor does the death associated with your character

    think: horror movie protagonist

    you can suffocate without dying, you know

    that is an appropriate use of the term

    Did that stand for anything?

    it stood for the four types of Attributes/Challenges in the game

    ie the four things it was actually used for

    Expertise, Prowess, Influence, and Combat (which was renamed "Conflict" in the revision I did a while back)

    i actually did a new version of EPIC a while ago, i just never posted it because nobody cared the first time i posted EPIC and since i don't have any plans to run anything with it besides my The Alternates campaign which i may or may not do in the future, it probably won't get posted any time soon either

    it's never been playtested, so i dunno!

    According to Webster's, suffocate as an intransitive verb means "to kill by asphyxiation."

    It's used as a transitive verb more broadly.

    I'm no English major, but I think it's an intransitive in the above phrase.

    Obviously the first time you posted EPIC the forum crit failed their appreciating awesome stuff check

    It was a very flexible system (by which I mean you could do pretty much fucking anything with it) and I remember putting together a bunch of builds just to try it out

    Dammit, forum

    the new version of EPIC is a lot better

    i basically learned a lot from other systems and incorporated other ideas, changed how the dice operated, etc.

    it's pretty good now, i came up with a whole campaign setting to test it with and all, i just don't feel like running it right now so i am doing Hunter instead

    Lisa Grantham was a college drop out who worked in a childs clothing store at a mall a few towns down from hers, did some baby sitting when she got the chance. She spent most of her free time going to bars, playing Karaoke, and being a hipster socialite. She learned how not to text and drive the hard way.

    only thing off about that that I can think of, is the "working at a mall a few towns away" bit.

    well I live in the south

    this is pretty common

    I don't know many people with sub 50 mile commutes who work retail. It's kind of a minor detail.

A scientific mind , he had always delved into science fiction and the like with an overwhelming hunger tempered by a level-headed working ethic. However, due to some financial complications he was unable to complete college, landing him in his current occupation.

    So there he was, on a hot summer day in July, strapped to a telephone pole reading Asimov after successfully repairing the damaged transformer. He found it pretty calming up there most times.

    It was shame he got so wrapped up in that story though.

    His charred body was found a week after the storm, hanging by the harness.
